Senior Executive Service

For SES employees and senior professionals (ST/SL), there are many HR-related policies that differ in significant respects from those that govern the general workforce.

These differences offer more flexibility and mobility, while linking your pay more directly with job performance.

The resources provided here offer an overview of HR policies and programs specifically as they relate to SES employees and senior professionals. For additional information, see our SES policies page for HR Practitioners or go to the Office of Personnel Management's SES page.
